 Running the automated accessibility suite from tenon.io again the
 wordpress.org homepage, I discovered several easy to fix accessibiliy
 issues with the home page - here are the detailed results:

 WordPress should strive to set the bar for accessibility by providing a
 completely accessible site! These are easy fixes, at least for the home

 Here is a summary of the issues spotted by the scanner:

 * Frames do not have titles (line: 176, col: 5 and line: 179, col: 5) -
 Frames must have titles which describe the content or purpose in the
 * Form element has no label (line: 56, col: 0) - Provide a label for all
 controls. This allows all users to understand the type of information
 expected in the field.

 The scanner also reports one warning about the search input lacking help
 links, however this appears invalid because the form is very simple.
 Automated scanning only goes so far :)

 Ultimately we should ensure that the entire site is accessible, fixing the
 home page is only a starting point.
